Christmas. 1823. Mr Fezzywig’s annual Christmas Ceilidhs have become legendary in the city of Liverpool and this year is no exception. Business is booming and Mr Fezzywig has hired one of the best Ceilidh bands around.
Whether you are coming with your family, friends or even your work colleagues, we have plenty of room for you all at one of the biggest ceilidhs in the country within the equally vast and magnificent, splendour of St George’s Hall.
The ceilidh will be held in the Great Hall, famous for its Minton Tiles and Willis organ which contains 7,737 pipes. The Great Hall is 169ft long, 77ft wide and 82ft to the crown of the ornate barrel-vaulted ceiling, it’s a fitting room for a legendary Christmas Ceilidh!
Once you arrive you will be escorted down to the Great Hall where our full band will await your arrival.
If dancing is your thing, our Ceilidh band and caller will be on hand to teach you all the steps to some of the best-known dances. If you would much rather observe the merriment and festivities of the Ceilidh revellers, then what better way to do it than in the opulent setting of the Great Hall.
St George’s Hall regularly played host to one Mr Charles Dickens where he would often give readings of his latest works. In 1869 a massive banquet was held for him in the great hall to wish him “bon voyage” prior to his passage to America. Let the ghosts of Dickensian Christmas’ past lead you by the hand to the dance floor to dance the night away and let the warmth and charm of the Ceilidh band fill your heart with festive Cheer.
You never know. If you are good girls and boys on the dance floor you might even get a special visit from Father Christmas too! God Bless us…. everyone!

The Belgrave House Band will perform their interpretation and celebrate the 50th anniversary of David Bowie’s seminal album, Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.
Featuring Leeds/London’s finest Art Rock God, ‘Joshua Zero’ up front as lead singer. They’ll be backed up by the ever-astounding selection of exuberant, dynamic and highly skilled musicians from Leeds’ burgeoning Jazz and Soul scene from bands such as Têtes de Pois, Mamilah and Skwid Ink to name a few. For the first time ever The Belgrave House Band are working with a live string section to bring Ziggy’s orchestral flavours to life.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary, Ziggy Stardust holds its place as one of the most impactful albums of all time. Intrepid and impulsive, Bowie’s androgynous alien alter ego has touched millions of hearts around the globe. Join the Belgrave House Band to celebrate this magnificent musical effort.
Stretching the boundaries of expectation as they move between cellos, classical and steel string guitars, viola, piano, violin, harp, percussion and harmony vocals, be prepared to question all you think you know about the traditional chamber ensemble.

Through this daring ensemble, Moulettes explore the resonant beauty of these acoustic
instruments with ambition, ingenuity and poise. Choosing to play in-the-round wherever
possible, the crowd encircle the band, close enough to become part of the sixth-sense synergy
that makes ensemble playing so magical to witness.
